Even though I am down in Flerida for the winter, I still have a room to show you guys from my Massachusetts home.
I really don't know why I put together a guest room.
I don't like having guests.
They expect to spend the night.
Which means that they'll be there in the morning.
The only one
who should be in my house in the AM is ME!!!
I don't want to sleep in their stinkin' house,
and I don't want them sleeping in my stinkin' house!!!
If you're reading this blog,
looking for gracious tips on living....
go somewhere else.....
I do like decorating bedrooms.
So I decorated a guest room
that only has had two guests in my 8 years living in my condo.
I would like to note at this juncture.....
that's two too many!!!!!
I'm going to rename my blog.....
Betsy's Tips on Gracious Hosting!!!!
Come look at my guest room and leave!!!!!
That's going to be on my next needle point pillow!!!!!
without further ado.....
Here's my guest room.
Isn't it purty?????
I took this shot at night....
it's all glowey and cozy.
The bed, rug, bed skirt, draperies, lamps and chairs were from my bedroom in my old home in Watertown.
Here's a shot of my previous bedroom.....

Since I created a whole new look for my master bedroom in my condo,
I was able to use all my beloved furniture and fabrics in my guest room.
I didn't have space for a guest room in Watertown.
I never missed having one.
I am now beating a dead horse.
back to my condo guest room.....
I had to add a dormer to the upstairs "room",
that was actually nothing more than a large storage space.
The dormer doubled the floor area, and gave me the perfect place to tuck my iron bed.
The builder had to install collar ties in the ceiling to keep the walls from falling down.....
(they're the wooden beams, that actually hold the walls together....)
I left them rough, and just had them painted white.
Then I drove the wallpaper guy crazy, by making him wallpaper around them!!!!!
I chose a small floral paper for an all over cottagey pattern.
This is a picture I took at night, so it's not as yellowy as this picture,
just a creamy background with pink flowers.
OK, I got off my @$$ and found a daylight shot.....
Now don't go asking me whose wallpaper this is.
I DON'T REMEMBER!!!!!
SO DON'T ASK AND MAKE ME FEEL.....
LIKE I'M LOOSING MY MIND!!!!
True to form,
I am going to make this a short post,
so I can milk this story for all it's worth.
Today I helped my friend Connie shop for her husband's bed.
She hates the way it looks and wants to redress it.
tomorrow, I am heading out to her house to make the bed up into a pretty hedonistic place to lay his handsome head.
I will be taking before, during and after shots, to show you guys how the professionals make their beds look so wonderful.
I better make it look good, or you all will know that I'm just blowing smoke out my.......
(now, Betsy, be a lady......hah!!!!!)
Have you all noticed how my blog is devolving???????
The more I write,
the smaller my filter...............
My fingers just move.......
and these rude words and thoughts just magically appear on the screen!!!!!
On Tuesday, I will show Connie's man's room.....
then on Thursday I will return to my guest room.....
unless something else steals my attention.....
